|Glenn Macdonald, Musician and Cartographer, Art Waves #135|
Glenn Macdonald, also known as Martin Fields, is a singer song-writer by avocation and a map-maker by vocation. But, surprisingly, he maps water, which is a perfect metaphor for the kind of multi-layered divination he brings to his song lines. Tune in for a fascinating conversation and some meltingly beautiful, live music, including two new songs, heard here for the first time!
